Hello, my name is Christina Shaw. I am a mother of two busy boys, a wife (married 9 years, but together since high school, so 15 years), and a devoted educator. I am also a professional student, because I am a professional and a constant learner. I love to learn from my students, colleagues, family, and professors. I have been teaching for 8 years in public school district, outside of Houston, Texas, but I have been working with kids and teaching over 10 years. I am currently a graduate student and expected to graduate in August 2012 with a Masters of Education with specialization in Advanced Literacy from Concordia University-Austin. I have a Bachelor’s in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Houston. Go Coogs! I have always wanted to be a teacher, but I wanted to learn about how children develop and to understand them before teaching. I cherish and adore my kids, because I want them to feel safe and secure, which they may not experience at home. My district is considered an urban and Title I district.
I am very new to blogging! My successful, blogger SIL, Heather Shaw, has been so encouraging and helpful through this process. Thank you so much Heather, I love you!
I am going to share my thoughts, ideas, and quirks with the world. I hope you will walk with me in this journey to help inspire the next generation with a hands on, loving, laughing, and exciting environment.
